When you think of the most popular month for weddings, February likely does not come to mind, and you’d be right. Nationwide, the months of June, August and September take the top three spots for the most ceremonies performed – and February actually comes in third from the bottom. So why would the National Association of Bridal Consultants name February as National Wedding Month? You may be surprised.
By far, more wedding proposals take place over Christmas and New Year’s than at any other time of the year. With so many newly engaged couples, there is bound to be a surge in wedding planning, and it takes place in – you guessed it – February. Perhaps finally recovering from the hustle and bustle of the holidays, couples begin wedding planning in earnest, making inquiries, booking their venues, choosing their dress, and arranging for flowers and entertainment. It is this rise in activity that has earned February the designation. Still, Schaaf Floral has a few additional ideas as to why February is a great month to celebrate Minneapolis weddings.
Did You Know? 2.4 million couples get married every year in the United State.
There is no denying the romance factor in February – Valentine’s Day is the king of romantic holidays, and that alone makes us think of engagements, weddings, and anniversaries. In fact, February 14th ranks just behind New Year’s Day for numbers of wedding proposals, making it a very popular day to pop the question. The holiday is also a popular time to actually walk down the aisle, resulting in an ever-increasing number of Valentine’s Day anniversaries.
A final interesting fact – another highly sought-after date for wedding ceremonies also occurs in February, once every 4 years. February 29th, only occurring in a leap year, is a unique and popular choice for couples.
